[Kansas City.com] The question drew a chuckle, but it had to be asked because Damon Huard had just led the Chiefs to another victory, and Trent Green is getting ready to practice again for the first time since mid-September.
When Green is ready, will he still be your guy?
“Trent Green is the starting quarterback,” coach Herm Edwards said. “When he’s ready to play, he’s going to play.”
While Huard soaked all of Sunday in – his 232 yards and two touchdowns, the late charge down the field – Green was swarmed by a legion of cameras at his locker. At the end of the week, Chiefs president/general manager Carl Peterson said Green had been cleared to practice, and he’ll be on the field Wednesday when the team resumes work.
But Green said Sunday that realistically, he probably won’t be back until at least the Miami game on Nov. 12.
“I talk to the neurosurgeons a couple of times a week,” Green said. “Next week I’ll have another checkup after going through this course of practice and see how this feels. I’m really kind of on their timeline.”
